This renovation of a cottage in Seal Cove was a transformation for the books and why it is among the best renovations to mention. What started as a raised ranch from the 1970’s was converted into a classic New England Cottage. The original house had an efficient floor plan and great structural bones including quality wood framing and a near perfect foundation. A second floor was added to include two bedrooms and a common living room loft space. The dramatic change to the look was a matter of layering the architectural details on top of a deconstructed box.
